December Daily - Day Twelve

Today was the big day, the day Christopher went to tell Santa what he wants for Christmas. My son really likes Legos and asked Santa for a Lego City Construction Set and a Lego City Garage. It was two or three weeks ago that Christoper announced he wanted to see Santa on this day. And look at how cute he is! He's getting so big!

My project I'd like to share with you today is this holiday Tussie Mussie I made with vintage sheet music. These are easy and fun to make and they look so pretty on the tree. Just roll some of your favorite patterned paper into a cone shape. Don't worry if the bottom doesn't come to a perfect point since you cut a little off to add a ball. I added a jingle bell on mine. Then I used a tinsel stem to decorate the top of my Tussie Mussie. K & Company has some wonderful embellishments out in their Evergreen line that I used to embellish the front of my cone. Lastly, I added a silver glittered leaf sprig and a jute handle. So easy!

I want to close my blog post today with a heartfelt message to my dearest friend Audrey. She lost her little hedgehog, Sonic, this morning. He was the sweetest little beast! I was fortunate enough to get to know him this past year and spent many moments with him snuggled in my sweatshirt pocket. Sonic will be missed terribly and Audrey you in my thoughts! It's terribly difficult to lose a cherished pet. I'm here for you my friend. If you would like to let Audrey know you are thinking of her, click on her name and leave a message on her blog.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you can visit again tomorrow for another December daily. :) Kathy
